A dental crown, sometimes known as a dental cap, is a type of restoration that covers or surrounds a tooth.
What Is Crown?
A dental crown is a cap-like repair that covers the entire visible surface of a tooth that has been damaged or extracted. They are made to protect the tooth, improve its function, and restore its strength and appearance. It can be made of a variety of materials, such as porcelain, ceramics, metals, or a mixture of materials. The position and function of the teeth, the patient’s bite and cosmetic preferences, and the cost of the procedure all influence which type is chosen. It is usually placed to cover a dental implant, after a root canal, or when a large filling is needed. Also, it can be used to make stained or discolored teeth look better. They are a successful long-term solution for repairing worn or damaged teeth.
Sometimes, the dentist will prepare the teeth by scraping them from the outside. Any tooth decay should also be removed. If you need additional tooth structure to support the crown, your dentist may use the “Core-Bildap” procedure. A “primary bridge” is a method in which the dentist reconstructs the missing structure of a tooth using a suitable restorative material so that the tooth is ready to receive a crown. By doing so, the crown creates a suitable foundation for its support.
By establishing a suitable mindset for a dental crown, this idea can be created for the patient using a template or a digital scan of the teeth.
When Do I Need Crown Treatment
The dental crown is recommended in the following cases:
- After a root canal: A crown is often placed over a tooth that has a root canal to protect and restore the treated tooth.
- Large cavities or fillings: If the tooth has a large cavity or filling, a crown can help prevent further damage and fracture.
- Broken or chipped tooth: It can be used to protect and restore a chipped or fractured tooth.
- Cracked or misshapen teeth: It can improve the appearance of cracked or misshapen teeth.
- Dental implants: A crown can be used to cover dental implants, to restore the appearance and function of missing teeth.
- Tooth wear: To protect worn teeth due to grinding or other factors, it can also be used.
In general, it is used to protect and restore the function and appearance of damaged or damaged teeth, and to improve the overall health of the mouth.
Result Of Crown
The results of a dental crown procedure are usually the restoration and strengthening of teeth so that they function and resemble natural teeth. The treated tooth should improve its appearance of the tooth and protect it from further damage or decay.
After the operation, the treated tooth should be less sensitive and function normally for biting and chewing. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing, to keep your crowned teeth and surrounding teeth and gums healthy.
In most cases, this method is a long-term solution to restore damaged teeth and can last for several years with proper care. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are recommended to monitor the health of your crown and surrounding teeth and gums.
Overall, this treatment is an effective and aesthetic solution to restore and strengthen damaged or decayed teeth, and it can significantly improve oral health and appearance.
